Caption: Eden Project construction. Cranes and the geodesic framework for the Eden Project domes, in Cornwall, England. The domes were built from 1997-2001, and the hexagonal struts now support plastic membranes that allow the domes to function as greenhouses, the world's largest. The main dome is 240 metres long, 110 metres wide, and 50 metres high. Inside the domes is the scaffolding needed to erect the domes. Over 46,000 scaffolding poles were used in what was another world record. The domes contain different plant biomes (humid tropics and warm temperate) and a huge variety of plants. It was designed by the architectural firm of Nicholas Grimshaw and Partners.
